Hi!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by! I wish we could meet in person. I’d love to know what brings you here and how I can be a good friend and prayer warrior in your life! Please feel free to comment on any posts you read or send me a note through Contact Me. I’d love to get to know you!

This is a place for encouragement and hope.You’ll find I write about the God of hope, and my prayer is Romans 15:13, that He would fill each one of us with joy and peace in believing, that we might abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit! My desire is to daily become more wholly His, that He would have my whole heart as I pursue a more surrendered, intimate and life-producing relationship with Jesus. I pray this is a place where together we can learn to rest in God’s grace to love Jesus more, draw nearer to Him, journey deeper in Him, believe bigger and live freer! Encountering God in the pages of His word is one of the greatest ways to know Him and hear His voice for every practical and impossible need we have today. God is real, and His word is relevant for marriage, parenting, friendships, hope, faith, trust, grieving, healing, believing and growing. I have personally witnessed the Lord deliver me from bulimia, alcoholism and a whole slew of bad decisions. He has saved my marriage, blended my family and miraculously altered our circumstances, so I believe everything He says in His word! Any time you visit, I want you to leave knowing Him more, not me. I want you to follow Jesus, not me.

A lot of the hours I am able to allot to writing are dedicated to writing lessons for local Bible study groups and women’s events and to writing the Bible studies God has put in my heart that burn like fire in my bones! It doesn’t leave a lot of time for new blog posts, but when God makes it clear He has something to say, you’ll find it here. If it’s easier for you to subscribe than visit me here, you’ll receive an email when there’s something new to share.  Just enter your email in the top right sidebar and you’ll be all set!

A little about me…

 

I am a stay- and work-at-home mom of one teenage and three young adult kids, one of whom is married, so I’m a mother-in-law too! My husband of 20 years and I live in Texas, where we run our family-owned and operated custom home building business! We are loud, crazy, completely in love with Jesus and each other, and we enjoy living in happy, orderly chaos.

My life consists of early morning hours tucked away in the comfy chair in my office, alone with the Lord and without distraction. Well, that’s if you don’t count JJ, my Maltese baby who constantly serves as a welcome interruption of cuteness. If I’m going to write at all, that’s when it happens. And I LOVE to write. I write to the Lord, and sometimes He gives me something to share here or in a Bible study.

JJ my distraction.

(This is JJ. Yes, someone needs to clean his face!

With the waking of the first person, my day and its busy begin! I try to exercise, which doesn’t always happen. I try to eat and cook healthy meals, which doesn’t always happen! I do love to cook, but I don’t share recipes here. I love fashion and shopping and hair and everything girly, fitness and health and reading. For all that, let’s hook up on social media!

Hugs and blessings!
